MMM - Mid-week Motivation - Crumpled and Torn Vellum

We are still creating using our Vintage theme courtesy of Fliss - don't forget that this month's overall winner will get a chance to be a guest designer on our team sometime next month.
This week it was the turn of Shabby Chic - Torn or Crumpled. My card today demonstrates both. I have taken a piece of vellum, crumpled and distressed it and also torn the edges - take a look
I have also crumpled my ribbon by grabbing a couple of threads at one end and gently pulling, as you can see it has been secured using small brads. The background paper is K& Co. Blue Awning and the bird cage stamp is from Stampin' Up's Nature Walk.
Hope this inspires you to join in the challenge, all the details can be found here.
See you next week - Jacqueline.
